Migration of the Adrienne family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Adrienne or a variant listed above: Christian Adrian, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1752; Sybriant Adrian to New York in 1759; P. Adrian to Baltimore in 1820; and L. Adriance to San Francisco in 1850..
